Housing Choice Voucher

Program Manager: Tina Renfroe

Announcement: Waiting List Opening

The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program is a rental subsidy program in the private sector. When Housing Choice Vouchers (HCV) are available, those at the top of the list will be called in for a Briefing which explains the HCV program. At this time, all information will be verified. If you are eligible, a voucher may be issued. You will then have sixty (60) days to find a privately owned rental unit within the guidelines of the HCV program. The maximum housing assistance is determined by the Payment Standard in effect at that time. The unit will also need to be inspected and must pass Housing Quality Standards. The tenant will be responsible for paying his/her portion of the rent, as determined by the Program Manager, directly to the landlord. GMHA will also pay its portion directly to the landlord. GMHA does not assist with security deposits.

GMHA has a Family Self-Sufficiency program to assist families seeking new or better employment. Any GMHA HCV tenant is eligible to apply. Please call Sarah Welch, our FSS Coordinator, for more information
